In the peace of this season our spirits are joyful:
With the beasts and angels, the shepherds and
stars, with Mary and Joseph we sing God’s praise.
By your coming may the hungry be filled with good
things, by your compassion may the desperate be
helped. And by your love may this table and home be
blessed. Bless us O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which
we are about to receive from Thy bounty through
Christ our Lord. Amen.
